The Rrazz Room, which closed at the Hotel Nikko after the new year after a dispute with the hotel’s management and was reborn two weeks later as Live at the Rrazz at the mezzanine performance space at 1000 Van Ness, appears to be closed again. The website shows a full roster of events — including a week of cabaret with Patti LuPone in March — however one of the performers scheduled to appear this week, Tom Orr, announced that his show has been canceled and the Rrazz is closed until further notice. Intriguing! The space, which is owned by car salesman Kjell Qvale and was ever so briefly known as Holly’s Comedy Club and then The Showroom, may be a touch cursed. We’ve reached out to the management for further details, and will let you know if we hear back. [Earlier]
